Large 911 Rat Exposed in Florida
Giuliani's worst nightmare
January 28, 2008 11:44 PM
Jim Riches, Sally Regenhard, and Rosaleen Tallon are the last people Rudy Giuliani wants in Florida as he launches a last-ditch effort to save his presidential bid, and his slowly waning image as the hero of 9/11. If he doesn't gain some traction in the Sunshine State, his bid for the White House is over. And critics like these are threatening his already slim chances with their assertion that it's Rudy whose campaign is actually based on a fairy tale.
Riches, Regenhard, and Tallon are survivors of true 9/11 heroes - ordinary New Yorkers whose loved ones were members of the New York City Fire Department. Their relatives rushed to the attack site and plunged into the buildings without any thought of their own safety. Along with hundreds of other firefighters, they were likely trapped and killed in the buildings' collapse - something the survivors say didn't need to happen. For these three, "America's mayor" is a fraud, responsible in large part for the deaths of the heroes whose courage he now exploits.
